Stephen Colbert Dashes Daniel Craig’s Plans in Hilarious ‘Spectre’ Scene

James Bond has a very tough time trying to rent a car in ‘Late Show’ skit

James Bond (a.k.a. Daniel Craig) stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Wednesday night to promote Spectre, the iconic spy’s latest adventure, and he brought along a rather unexpected look at the film. The bit began with Colbert taking Craig to task for Bond’s history of needlessly destroying the beautiful cars that he’s given to drive, a criticism that Craig promised would be addressed in the new 007 movie. Insisting that the issue would be handled with “A certain amount of gritty realism,” the actor introduced a “clip” from Spectre as proof.

The scene begins in Rome, as Bond races into a budget rental car company called RentalCo in desperate need of a getaway vehicle now that he’s inevitably destroyed his Aston Martin. Unfortunately for 007, RentalCo agent Randy (Colbert) doesn’t really care that Bond is trying to elude a bunch of assassins (“We all have things to do,” he sighs). From there, MI6’s top spy learns the hard way that getting a new set of wheels isn’t quite as easy in the civilian world — seeing Craig desperately try (and fail) to stop himself from laughing is something you won’t be able to find in any actual scene from Spectre, which opens in theaters Friday.
